Two heaters would work, of course, but why waste the electricity if you can find a way to conserve it? To be on the safe side you can do both - add the additional heater and insulate at the same time.
I had the two heater setup in my tank... and then I got an in-line heater with my canister. How do people handle those? Do you then have another heater hanging on the back? I got the in line to avoid that. I hate having all the things hanging inside the tank.
